The employee of the Austrian counterintelligence is suspected of disclosure of a state secret. Still scandal with the previous agent who has allegedly admitted guilt hasn't ceased. How will it affect the relations between the countries and at what here business by Skripalya? Photo: Angelika Warmuth/DPA/TASS One more Russian spy is revealed in Austria. The prosecutor's office of the country conducts investigation concerning the employee of the Austrian counterintelligence. As the Kronen Zeitung newspaper writes, he is suspected of disclosure of a state secret for which by the legislation of Austria it is provided up to 10 years of imprisonment. As approves the edition, the suspected employee reported the classified information to the Russian intelligence. It is already the second similar case. On November 9 the authorities of Austria declared that they suspect of espionage in favor of Russia the 70-year-old retired colonel of army. Media were written that the colonel has admitted guilt. The Embassy of Russia in Austria has refused to comment on the new spy scandal. It is unlikely one more revealed "mole" is capable to influence deterioration in the bilateral relations seriously. Most likely, Austria and Germany will try to hush up business. And here Great Britain will grasp him as for continuation of business by Skripalya, the head of the center of the German researches of institute of Europe of RAS Vladislav Belov considers. Vladislav Belov the head of the center of the German researches of institute of Europe RAS "Is our reality. In Russia the relevant intelligence services of other countries work, and the Russian intelligence works in all other countries. The fact admitted and the every time when there is a puncture, a failure of this or that agent, well, naturally, becomes scandal in the relations between the countries. Perhaps, expulsions of diplomats who allegedly supervise the related intelligence activities follow then. Refer to Kurz that Kurz has taken a careful position, Mrs. Knaysl has cancelled a visit to Moscow. I think that the Anglo-Saxon community will attract this scandal to business by Skripalya, to allegedly espionage activity of the Russian intelligence agents in the Hague connected with attempt to obtain the relevant information. But it seems to me, as Austria and furthermore Germany, having declared the corresponding protests, all this will accurately drop. Scandal will be, but it will be accurately nullified". The day before the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Austria has stated following the results of telephone conversations of the head of the Austrian diplomacy Karin Knaysl with her Russian colleague Sergey Lavrov that Vienna expects from Moscow of full cooperation in business of the colonel. Russia has in return declared unacceptability of practice of promotion of public unfounded accusations. The president and the Supreme Commander of Austria Alexander Van der Bellen has urged not to dramatize a situation and to wait for investigation results. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
